PBS News Weekend

Season 10, Episode 80 of 99

People born to undocumented Haitians in the Dominican Republic do not have birth certificates from either nation on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola. During the 20th century, hundreds of thousands of Haitians crossed into its neighboring nation -- the wealthier Dominican Republic -- to escape poverty and political instability. But overcoming that persecution led to other struggles. Now, they face color-based racism, violence and a recent law by the Dominican government that took citizenship away from people born to undocumented migrants. NewsHour Weekend's Ivette Feliciano has more as part of our ongoing series on Haiti.
